It was pointed out to me the other week that dd who is 6 has started walking with her left foot turned out. She regularly complains of pain in her feet but we have always explained it away. Do we need to take her to the doctor? Is there anything that can be done? We have asked her to walk normally but she can't do it sad

Go to the GP. Could be anything or nothing but you need to be sure

Go to the gp. Ds1 walks with his foot turned out and was referred to the hospital. It turns out he has weak muscles in his hip which in turn affects his knee and this causes his foot to turn out. He had physio and a podiatry appointment for an shoe insert all which helped him
